"S.J.'s Earthbound Trio On The Road"

One of the newer groups I was able to check out at the recent Music New Brunswick weekend hails from Saint John. Earthbound Trio are indeed a three-piece, featuring Dwayne Doucette on guitar and vocals, Bob Fitzgerald on stand-up bass, and recent import from the U.K., Dave Crewe on drums and percussion. They are on the road this weekend, a good chance for you to catch them as well.

The Trio hasn't released a disc or downloads for sale as yet, but you can hear their first recodings online, a generous seven songs, featured at While the trio is set up as an acoustic unit, that's merely the base of each track. The idea for several of the cuts is to add on, whether it's as simple as a harmony or harmonica here or there, or such major shifts as layers of electric guitars and electronic washes of horns. So a song like Horizon starts out softly, adding a bit as it goes, but still a nice little strummer, a campfire cut for the first couple of verses. Then percussion drops in on the chorus, some keyboards, it's a largely gentle and mellow tune. But Late Night Bus makes its rock presence felt way earlier, with full drums joining even before the first vocals, and that's joined by lots of harmonies on the chorus. By the second verse, an electric guitar is doing a second riff, and it eventually becomes louder than the acoustic. Everything keeps building, and now our small song is a big one, with handclaps, really pounding drums, and epic qualities along the lines of Hey Rosetta!

Over the course of the cuts available, the band shows they can go from ballads to reggae to rock, and that's a pretty good trick for a three piece. They're getting the word out in other parts of the province this weekend, with two shows. Friday night they will be at The Red Herring in St. Andrews, and on Saturday it's back to Moncton, where you can find Earthbound Trio at Plan B. - CBC


Still working on that hot first release.



Saint Johns EarthBound Trio melds folk and rock with electronic orchestration to create a lush landscape of genre-defying sound. EBT is a mix of talented musicians from the local scene and from across the pond who have most recently been recognized with a showcase opportunity at Music NB Week 2011.

Dwayne Doucette, who grew up amidst family kitchen parties full of fiddles, accordions, and jigs, has been writing music and playing guitar since he was young and released a solo acoustic album (self-titled) in 2006.

Bob Fitzgerald, bassist extraordinaire aka 'Big Orange Bob', is also strongly tied to the local scene, playing in various bands over the years including, Shanklin Road, Brent Mason Band, and the Dwayne Doucette Band.

Mike Humble, on drums and percussion. He is sure to amaze you with his ability produce backbeats that make you want to move.

With dynamic songwriting and powerful lyricism, EarthBound Trios songs will resonate and linger in your thoughts. While resembling an acoustic trio, they are much more than the sum of their parts, and louder than they appear!
